Randy nice Decepticon Logo there. I still have my 52 transformer bots somewhere. I know they are collectors items now. Ok, now I'm feeling way old.
Anyway I went the the LHS and was looking for the sway bar kit for the XXX-S, and the only ones I found was the rear one for the XXX-4 and the f/r kit for the XXX. I think it was losa1412, or something close to that. Anyone know what the right part # is for the XXX-S swaybars, front and rear?

Yeah the newest and oldest Optimus Prime, and all of the Decepticon 5 and 6 piece multi robots (I think there were 6 of them) Galvatron, Shockwave, Soundwave and all the cassettes. Sixshot, insecticons, and a few others, but no Megatron, or Starscream.

I agree with Randy about the 28mm. I have tried the double-pink orange(front) - double-pink (rear) on an 80F day and they worked pretty well. Although, the wear on the tires is pretty bad with tires that soft.

Overall it will depend on the setup that your using. I am pretty close to a carpet setup with softer springs.

I dont think there is a noticiable difference in acceleration when lighteneing the car. I personally did it because it looks so cool, but it should also help the car transition better through chicanes because less weight=less roll.

Unless you've got some real drive train binding, lack of acceleration is more than likely going to be a motor,battery,ESC, or even radio issue. I've seen guys get frustrated that they don't have speed and after looking at the radio settings, they'll have a throttle endpoint or something like that set wrong. You may have the ESC setup wrong. You never know.

I just drove a friends XRay and we have very similar electronics setup and without much practice, I went consistently 1 sec faster with his car than with mine... That's why I am going to go through everything on my car...
